I remember how we all came to sing door by door and how we ended up in one door singing and at the end we enter the house, wich was normally my aunt’s house (she always had the best food) finish signing with our neighbours and family, to finish with a great meal, one of the best time of my childhood, we all came together as one big family to eat. To us, this was a special time, I had to spend some time helping my aunt with the food, sharing some laughs with my cousins and eating a lot, of course as a Hispanic for us there is not better time than the holiday season, we enjoy every single moment to the max, and now I can share all my memories and some dishes with my daughter, I’m sure they would do the same with their kids too.

And of course to make a huge plate of food you need good quality products, and I have the best by my side, just as La Morena® and Knorr®, as many of you already know, these products bring the flavor of your food to another level. As always my go to place to find and buy my favorite products is Walmart and you must go to the Hispanic aisle, where you can find the products I’m using today in my recipe.

Because this time of the year is so busy, I make the recipe simple and easy to follow, with ingredients that we all have on hand, and of course other products that as I told you before you can find at your local Walmart.
And of course, this rice is just perfect not only for this special occasion but you can easily make it as an easy dinner for a large gathering on a different occasion.

My secret to the recipe? You ask, using Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon Granulated Bouillon to make the broth for the rice and the sauce and to add a different kick to the sauce also, I added some La Morena® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo, I love how subtle the spicy flavor is in my sauce not overpowering thanks to the chipotle peppers.

My recipe is simple but big on flavor and you will find it so easy to make that I just want to read all the comments you’ll have for me at the end.

Garden Rice #SundaySupper

Garden Rice #SundaySupper

One of the things the I love the most during summer time is that we can find lots of fresh veggies and fruits, and I love to make also lots of easy recipes with all these fresh vegetables.
I know what area you thinking, I live in California and most of the time we can find fresh fruit and veggies, and you are right but summer has the most delicious products and this is a great occasion to make the most out of them.

And this recipe has some of the products I use the most during this time, carrots and celery are delicious complements for the rice and it give it that fresh test and a beautiful color.

I love to use parboil rice, this rice is very easy to make and the consistency is very loose, the grain is strong so it keeps a nice shape no matter what you add to it.

Love this types of side dishes, and this rice is a great complement to a delicious piece of pork or beef. Hope you enjoy it.
